Gabriella Chieffo via Gabriella Chieffo
The hustle and excitement of Esxence, yet always I seek Gabriella Chieffo out (Italian creative director and now perfumer), as her work resounds through with the rawness of exposed emotions, to be introduced to her newest fragrance, Lattedoro, the uncontaminated balm of Friendship.
Gabriella Chieffo draw us into an emotion of such raw alacrity with Gabriella Chieffo Lattedoro that many will recognise and have been thrust into, the aftermath of a destructive relationship which leaves the Heart sundered and a confusion of the soul that opens us, raw and in tatters, reeling in a battered confusion.
Gabriella Chieffo Lattedoro, from the outset, Bergamot infused spices, exudes a warmth that instantly is a beholding Grace, a gathering of all the scattered pieces to a still in – breathing of a comfort and warm- heartedness. In an absolute stroke of genius Gabriella has crafted the closest one can get to ‘Touch’ within a fragrance, the sense of touch written in the sense of smell.

Out beyond tears and the tearing of the heart lies this sheer envelopment. The human estate is capable of so much torment one upon the other yet in this Fragrance is sweet redemption, the glimpsing of luminous hope and all the beauty that we are capable of in our relations.‘You collected the pieces of what I was and joined them together with the Golden glue of hugs, you cured me with Honey and words, and called me with the most beautiful name, Friend. You washed away all my pain with Milk and with the Sun you have within you defeated the anguish which freezes thought’ Gabriella Chieffo

The scent of warm skin on skin contact, but no hefty heaving physicality this is warmth of contact without agenda, a caring embrace of tender release, the relief to be able to surrender to the enfoldment of another for purely the comfort. Holding of a vulnerable woman in her time of most fragility, the gathering of pieces to be placed together in the safe confines of friendship and a Love free of conditions. Here in fragrance lies the mystery of all the beauty we are capable of. It is a key, a little note of reminder.

Its spicy warmth and nourishing milky quality is a central component of this heady brew of sublimity. The heart of Lattedoro, is true to its translation, ‘Golden Milk”, swept through with sublime coconut, silky as a pannacotta shot through with gorse flower and the downiness of Iris. The swirling of comfort akin to scented oils bathing and swathing a weary body in a hot bath.

Vapours of sandalwood invite a deeper level of creamy enfoldment, the sinking into a safety of a cocooning, within the soft tenderness of these notes are a veiled strength which is the abiding endurance of Lattedoro. A subtle sweetness of vanilla that never intrudes, never needs to ask questions, just welcome sensations of gestures of care, held in the subtlest of leather gloves. Lattedoro goes beyond the expression of emotion to embody the very sensation of Touch in liquid form.
